Absolutly fun synth.. easy as a toaster to use,, but the real reason i posted this comment is to mention one of its abilitys that sticks out to me... i love techno and have been using many of the newer beat boxes,, electribes, yamaha dx200 an200 etc.. great machines but you have 2 choices,as far a time sigs go, 4 on the floor or triplets,, with the mfb you have the ability to have a loop from 1 step to 32 steps cool stuff,, throw a little 5 step loop on top of a 16 step loop off another machine a little modulation COOL.. i hate software but missed the rebirth's ability to cut the steps well now i have it back and in all its analog goodness,, sorry to you VA lovers out there, but waves are better than 1000101010010101001010 .. yeah i admit i am a hypocrite i burn my tunes to cd.. oh well you get the idea. thanks for reading, my fellow sound tortures! michael

I own the Synth Lite II which is monophonic and has digital oscs. What stands out for me too is its filter. 24db lp real analogue. Sounds awesome. Especially with the resonance cranked up. Self oscillating squeaky goodness and it doesnt thin out the lower frequencies as much as others do.

Overall a big sound for little money. Envelopes are a little too slow for superpunchy percussive sounds but thats the only negative thing about it imho.

Pretty good description in the first review, so i'll focus on the sound. Oh my god! When I had first switched it on, I realised I had fantastic value for money. The sound straight out of the box blew me away. A little read of the manual to sus out the routing and ring mod etc.. and then some of the sounds I created were truly unique. Imagine a film score to a horror movie! Plenty of low end makes this ideal for bass but it don't touch my 101 so I don't personally use it for basslines. As for leads, pads and fx, it truly excels at these. It provides huge trance and techno leads and really does sound aggressive or smooth as you want. The analog oscillators beating against each other when detuned just sound lush. The filter just sounds fantastic, the only gripe I have is that it is only low pass. But to save the day, it has a filter input so you can mix external synths in with the mfb. Well worth experimenting with. Pad sounds are lush and everything you could hope for. Some more modulation options would be welcome but.... it sounds great anyway! There are basic modulation options but it also has a few little tricks. You can modulate the oscillators against the 3rd oscillator for fm style sounds and you can modulate vcf against vco 1 for more madness. Then add ring mod and a distortion pedal and watch out! Other than that there are two lfo's for vibrato, pwm and filter mod. If you like pop music you will never use this synth, but if you like nasty sounds this is the one for you. On a final note the manual is awful, you will have fun trying to access the system settings initially!!!
